Why Choose Middle School at Tempe Elementary?


Registration Process for the 2020-2021 Year During School Closures

To register a student for the 2020-2021 school year during this time of school closures, parents may download an Enrollment Packet. Please have it completed and ready to turn in. The District Office will be open for a limited time during the week of May 4 for parents to drop off packets.* If parents do not want to wait, they can scan and return the documents to us by emailing registration@tempeschools.org

*This is pending the ever-changing Coronavirus situation in our state.

When do I register my child for middle school?

Middle School Counselors visit all Tempe Elementary School District fifth-graders in February and distribute registration forms to students. 

For information on registration for this school year or next, please visit our Enrollment/Registration page.


Does my child need a physical to register?

Middle school students do not need a physical to attend school; however, participation in some afterschool sports requires a physical. When a physical is required, the coach will distribute the appropriate forms for the student’s doctor to fill out. If the student does not have a regular pediatrician, the school nurse can suggest places where students can receive a physical. In some cases, those offices base fees on the parent’s income, making the physical more affordable. Students only need one physical each school year, no matter how many sports they would like to play.
